Welcome to Roseville, MN
Located in Ramsey County, Roseville, MN is one of just two suburbs that are adjacent to both Minneapolis and St. Paul. With a population of just around 37,000 people, Roseville has the feel of a small town, but its convenient location means you’re only a few minutes from city life. Commuting into both cities is easy as State Highway 36 goes through the center of town, connecting to Interstate 35, both east and west.
Not only is Roseville’s location a draw for people looking for a place to call home, it’s also a draw for businesses and shoppers. The city’s per-capita retail spend is higher than Bloomington‘s, and it has the highest number of restaurants in the area per-capita. This business presence supports a thriving city economy as well as drawing new industry to the city.
The History of Roseville
Roseville is a fairly young suburb, incorporating in 1948 into an independent city. Like much of the Twin Cities area, it experienced a population boom between 1955 and 1970 – in 1950, only about 6,500 people live in Roseville, but by 1970, that number grew to almost 35,000. Since then, population has been stable, but this growth is reflected in the residential homes of the area. Mid-century modern architecture and ramblers are common, though there are homes for all styles in the town.
Commercial growth grew along with the population at a much faster rate than surrounding areas. The first Target opened up in Roseville in 1962, and the first Barnes & Nobles Bookstore outside of New York City was built in Roseville.
